A popular question we get from patients is whether CoolSculpting helps with post-pregnancy fat. Will CoolSculpting make my stomach flat after having kids?
CoolSculpting can eliminate fat that you gained during and after being pregnant. It’s very common for women to gain weight at this time and, it can be really difficult to get rid of it since it’s usually concentrated in the mid-section, where fat can be its most stubborn. But here’s what you should know: that spare tire or pot belly you have may not only be caused by excess fat. It might also be loose skin that is sagging.
While CoolSculpting is a great way to flatten your stomach, it can only eliminate unwanted fat. It can’t do anything for loose skin. So, if you have sagging skin, CoolSculpting might not be the right solution for you. Or, you may want to eliminate the fat first with this treatment, then target the loose skin with another technology. One treatment that our patients have had great success with is Venus Freeze, or its more advanced alternative, Venus Legacy. Both of these treatments, based on the same Radio Frequency, Magnetic Pulse Therapy and VariPulse™ technology, can not only destroy fat, but also tighten up your skin. Its fat reduction abilities are not as powerful as CoolSculpting, but only because it does two things at once: tighten skin and destroy fat.
